Macduff Distillery was founded in 1962. Located in the Highlands, beside the River Deveron near the North Sea, the official name of the distillery has gone back and forth between names Deveron and MacDuff, but the majority of their bottlings have been released under the name Deveron. The distillery changed hands several times before being acquired by Bacardi’s subsidiary John Dewar & Sons, the label that also owns Royal Brackla, Aberfeldy, Aultmore, and Craigellachie. The Macduff facility produces 2,400,000 liters of spirit a year. It has a classic design, conjured by distillery architect William Delme-Evans. The stillhouse houses one of the most interesting parts of the overall engineering. It has five stills, two wash, and three spirit. The wash stills have distinct upward-tilted lyne arms and 90-degree kinks in their design. This unusual bend in the lyne arm creates a reflux that yields a light, fruity spirit. The resultant new make also has a nutty slightly sulphury character, which is due to the quick mashing, short fermentation, and cold condensing technique. It is this process that defines the character of Deveron Whisky. In 2015 John Dewars & Sons launched their “Last Great Malts” Collection: a range of high profile single malt whiskies. This line up included top-shelf whiskies from Aberfeldy, Aultmore, Craigellachie, and Royal Brackla. They released several premium age statement expressions from each brand. The Deveron 18 Year Old was launched in September 2015 along with a 12-Year-Old. This rare coastal whisky harbors the tangy notes of redcurrants, alongside sturdy apple notes, dried fruits and nutty warm finish. Bottled at 40% ABV.
